Two Different Companies looking to cast for two different shows

By Russ Bickerstaff
Mid way through this month there are a couple of shows looking to cast for the upcoming season.

Shorts programs end up being few and far between. One of the longest consecutively running shorts programs in Milwaukee—um . . . perhaps t...
